As time goes on there’s an increasing number of aspects to our world and we’re always excited to spread our wings and offer new products and looks. One aspect that will never change though is at the centre of our world – WE MAKE SUITS. It’s our foundation.
We started out as graduates of Gieves & Hawkes’ Made To Measure training & hit the road with nothing more than a few cloth books and tape measures between us, visiting our customers at homes and workplaces. Over time, we’ve grown steadily and and now have a shop of our own.
Surely there’s no better way of selling this side of our business than to showcase some of our work from happy customers who have come through the door and asked us to make them a suit.
Obviously each request can be very different from the last and it is this diversity that we thought would be interesting to see, especially as a potential customer.
We always agree that an image speaks louder than words so will leave the remaining words to the customers who we thank for agreeing to help us do this…
MR TOM HARVEY
Tom Harvey had a navy two piece suit for his big day. Made from a lightweight wool with a burnt orange lining to match one of our burnt orange knitted ties and hankies. An Eton white signature twill shirt and Crockett and Jones double monk strap shoes for a classic winter country wedding. All from Doherty Evans & Stott.
MR ROD & DAN PRIESTLEY
Rod & Dan had two matching handmade jackets and trousers for their wedding in Portugal. Lightweight seersucker and white cotton trousers. Finished off with fresh white shirts and Crockett and Jones hassle loafers. All from Doherty Evans & Stott.
MR DALE NOLAN
Dale and Sheena’s wedding in Lake Como. Dale wore a handmade Caruso three piece suit in a lightweight wool check. The ushers wore a three piece custom suit in French navy. All had matching knitted ties and hankies from Doherty Evans & Stott.
MR CARL HOPWOOD
Athree piece suit for a rural wedding. Carl went for our custom service and chose a checked Loro Piana wool cloth. We chose a brown knitted tie and hanky to bring the look together.
MR HENRY PEARCE
Kirsten and Henry were wed on 1st June 2018 at the beautiful grade II listed Chainstore venue at London’s Trinity Buoy Wharf. Henry wanted a more relaxed outfit for his wedding so we mixed up materials and colours and went with a jacket, trouser and waistcoat combination.
